Filled to the brim with either 12,500 rounds of XM855 5.56mm NATO, or 7,500 rounds of XM80 7.62X51 NATO ammunition, the metal Bulk Barrels are painted an attractive, eye-catching shade of yellow and sport a patriotic image of a majestic American bald eagle soaring on outstretched wings, its talons fully extended.

Too enormous to serve as stocking stuffers, the barrels make ideal pickup-truck bed stuffers, and allow customers to give the gift of Freedom in bulk to friends and loved ones.

Perfect for use in AR-15-style firearms – often referred to as “America’s Rifle” – the 12,500- round barrel of 5.56 can fill 416 standard-capacity, 30-round magazines all the way up to the very tip top, with 20 rounds still left over.

For shooters who enjoy 30-caliber-power, the 7,500-round barrel of XM80 7.62X51 can jam- pack 375 standard-capacity 20-round magazines for full-size battle rifles like the M14, G3 or FAL – also known as the “Right Arm of the Free World.”

Manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant to exacting standards, both calibers of ammo have non-corrosive primers and are topped with full metal jacket projectiles. The boxer- primed cases are easily reloadable, allowing multiple reuse for maximum liberty and sustainable recycling of naturally-occurring Earth metals.

    Remember to shoot those beaver billets your rifle twist should be at least 1in 8. Most of the cheep ARs at 1 on 9 or better Themilitary I think uses a 1in 7 and use a 77 gr. Bullet. I have not sean any military ammo in a lone time. They call it surplus ha ha ha . Someone smarter than. me Chan check on this.

    1/9 is fine for up to 69gr bullets. The U.S. Military rifles are 1/7, but they use 62g with the exception of some special ops that use some of the heavier bullets. The XM855 uses a 62g bullet.

    That’s too rich for my blood. Over $ 0.31/rd. plus shipping, wow. Maybe a cool promo tool for an indoor range to load your mags out of the drum. But they would have to charge between $16/$20 per mag to do any good. That’s pretty steep, especially with all the sales and rebates lately.

    What they’re not telling you: Shipping is not free.

    can you imagine what the shpg charge would be ?

    Palmetto Armory sells 556 for $280.00 with free shipping. How much are these people charging for shipping on the OVER PRICED AMMO?

    I thought that the whole idea of buying in bulk/mass quantity was to get a better price. At these prices, I’ll stick with my local dealers.

    First, 5.56 NATO is 64 grs not 55. The reason the 5.56 went to the heavier bullet was stability and penetration issues. Second, this is very expensive for bulk ammo. If you own an AK you can buy 20,000 rounds of the best ammo on the planet for $4000. So, where’s the value?

    No, 5.56x45mm can be loaded with a multitude of bullet weights, but the most common are 55gr (xm193) and 62gr (m855). There is currently not a 64gr loading used by any NATO country. Also, the price asked for milspec 5.56 NATO ammunition is absolutely acceptable. I don’t know why you think they premium brass cased 7.62x39mm ammo is less expensive than 5.56 NATO, but it isn’t. I think you’re confusing non-premium, steel cased 7.62x39mm with premium 7.62x39mm. FYI, the steel cased stuff is far more common.

    Me think you both are confused, haha. The ad is for 7.62x51mm not 7.62x39m!!

    62 grains, not 64. I realize it was likely a “typo” error.

    Well, they certainly generated some buzz, which was what they wanted to do. As others have pointed out, 31.5 cents per isn’t a great price, but showing your shooting buddies your ammo stash-priceless!

    Who can afford this overwhelming price not to mention, they’re out of stock. 31 cents a round Is double what should be paid. No, an agent from ATFE wouldn’t accompany this delivery. They’ve got better things to do. You can find this type bulk Ammo at many places throughout Texas. Way cheaper to.

    They’re out of stock as of 12/15, AM. Price per round wasn’t that great anyway…don’t even want to know what shipping would cost for that and the federal agent that would obviously come with it!

    Price is nothing special. $2,500 would be average. $2,000 would be a decent deal. $3,900 amounts to customers paying for the privelege of cleaning out your basement. Might as well buy 1,000 rounds at a time with these rates. That’s a very expensive barrel!

    So I can buy 1000 rd bricks at 25c or I can buy 12500 barrel at 31c. I mean sure you get a handy barrel but its $775 cheaper to buy the bricks. Great idea but kinda screwed us on the price.
